Eraserhead meets Pi
20 December 2003 | by (Dalton, Ga.) – See all my reviews

Even though this film is in color, I couldn't help but notice the darkly subtle touches which reminded me of early David Lynch (Right down to the main character Thomas being Henry'esque from Eraserhead) and Darren Aronofsky's "?". Tension, paranoia, and overall uneasiness shape this movie from beginning to end. The soundtrack is also highly effective in conveying Thomas' descent into measuring madness. I recommend this if my description seems interesting to you.
